To signup for credit cards you can click here or on the “other credit cards” tab on top of the DansDeals logo banner to view links for card offers. Then just click on the link to “View all card offers by issuing bank” and scroll down to view all card offers from the bank of your choice.

Pulls from TU in NJ, NY , FL , PA

Recon 866 408 4064 (might pull from Experian)

For those who want to churn and/or want to get the bonus without paying the annual fee: Wait until the A/F gets charged, pay it off with the rest of the bill, and the sign-up bonus will post (at the end of that billing cycle). Then call to close the account and ask to be refunded. They can't charge an A/F for a card you aren't using. You will not lose the miles once they are in your US Airways account.

It seems that if after you use the card you just let it sit unused for a couple months, they will then email you with a targeted offer for 15,000 more points for spending $750 a month for three months.

Thanks, Eli. I'll shut the card down on the 15th, when my miles post.
I downgraded and they confirmed by SM that I'm still eligible for the credit. (I don't trust them though. They don't seem to know anything. We'll see what happens)

Someone reported that a rep said that as well.

IMO & IME, most Barclay reps are relatively incompetent :)

has anyone tried downgrading the card via SM to be able to churn for one more time before card goes away?  miles have posted to USAirways account and balance is 0 with fee and purchases paid off.  is it worth taking the chance via SM or best to do over phone?

Phone. SM reps tell you to call IME.

Is it possible to get approved for one card while other one is still open?  Or is it possible to apply with a 2BM 2 the same cards? Or will a middle name make a difference to get approved while one is open?

So if its best to just churn the US AIR before it goes away instead of trying to get a 2nd one approved, what do I downgrade the US AIR too? Also - once I downgrade , can I churn it right away? Or do I need to wait a day or for something before I do this?

Barclay Rewards, arrival,
And applying after getting and activating the converted card, is probably a good idea.

Problem is that by the time it comes, there might not be enough time to chrun the US AIR.

True. All you can do is try though.
